Funded by Northern Territory Government

The Northern Territory Government supports a finite number of fully subsidised Assessment Clinic places for CEOs/MDs of small and medium Northern Territory companies with 5* - 199 employees. The value of the Assessment Clinic is $5,000 (excl. GST) but eligible companies can attend at no cost. Eligible CEOs/MDs need to register and provide prep work to the Centre which Growth Experts review before working with a small number of CEOs in a Clinic. After completing the Clinic, CEOs can choose to continue on, with two other members of their executive team, and further their learning with the Growth Modules.


No Cost *applicable to eligible NT companies

Usually $5,000 excl. GST

What to Expect on the Day

At the Clinic, you will be in a group of approximately four CEOs/MDs who are seeking to grow their companies. The Clinic will be facilitated by one of the Centre’s Growth Experts, who will walk you through the ‘Seven Secrets to Scaling Growth’ and share case studies and examples derived from starting, growing and exiting their own company.

The afternoon will be focused on discussions about the factors impeding the growth of your company. At the Clinic, you will work through your Action Planner and finish the day by developing a personal Leadership Development Plan and a Company Action Plan which you will take away to implement. Throughout the day, you will have many opportunities to speak with the Growth Expert and fellow CEOs about your particular growth issues, ask questions, and seek guidance.

Meet Your Growth Experts

Our Growth Experts are carefully selected, current and former CEOs/MDs who have experienced the full life-cycle of growth in one or more companies of their own. They teach and facilitate our structured programs and are passionate about helping you, and other business owners, learn what you need to know to achieve your growth goals.

The Assessment Clinic Application Process

  1. 1 Apply

    Choose your preferred date/location/delivery mode from our list of upcoming Clinics and complete the online application form. Please indicate any alternative dates/locations that could work for you.

  2. 2 Acceptance

    One of our Program Officers will call to confirm that you and your company meet our acceptance criteria: (1) You are the CEO/MD, or the primary decision maker in your company, and (2) your company has 5* – 199 full time equivalent (FTE) employees. If these criteria are met, our Program Officer will confirm the date and location of your Clinic and outline prep-work requirements which must be completed two weeks before you attend the Clinic.

  3. 3 Prep-Work

    Our Program Team will outline the required prep-work that must be completed at least two weeks before the Assessment Clinic. If you do not complete the prep work on time, you cannot attend or receive access to the Clinic and will need to register for a later Clinic. Prep work includes submitting the last two years of financial reports (Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss Statements), an organisation chart, and filling out the online ‘Company Information Form’ to provide information about the company, and the leaders’ and the company’s performance on a number of factors. This information enables our Growth Experts to understand the different issues facing each company, so he/she can deliver insights relevant to your particular situation. All company information you submit is securely stored in the Cloud and on UniSA servers. You can read about our Information Handling Policy here.

  4. 4 Completing the Clinic

    If you are attending a face-to-face or Zoom-enabled Clinic, the program commences at 9am and concludes at 5pm. You will be expected to be present for the full day, to switch off emails and mobile phones, and focus on assessing your company and yourself as its leader. You will be provided with all of the materials and resources you require on the day. If your Clinic is face-to-face, you will receive a printed copy of the Action Planner, and lunch and tea will be provided. If your Clinic is Zoom-enabled or Virtual, you will need to use the online version of the Action Planner we provide.

    One day after completing the Clinic you will receive a request to evaluate the Clinic. We ask you to respond and provide comments, so we can continuously improve the Clinic program and experience.

  5. 5 Support

    After completing the Assessment Clinic, you will receive our fortnightly “Dr Jana Refresher” emails to help you stay on track, execute your plan, achieve your goals, and grow. You will also receive our AUCBG Monthly Newsletter with links to new articles and tools to help you grow.

    Once a year, you will be asked to provide yearly updates on revenue, profit, FTE jobs, and export revenue generated, plus answer a few questions about your leadership and growth strategies. The Longitudinal Survey takes about 10 minutes to respond. It’s extremely important that you respond because the responses you and fellow CEOs provide will inform the policies and programs introduced at the state and federal level to support company growth.
